FDN1617 Hadith Analysis (Riyad al-Salihin)

Please note this is an online course

Module 2: Hadith Studies

Unit 1: Hadith Analysis
Seminar 1: Introduction to Hadith and Chains of Narration
Seminar 2: The Six Primary Hadith Compilations

Overview

The module has been developed to introduce students to hadith studies and to derive points of benefit from the prophetic traditions. The style and method of teaching will be to encourage students to understand the essence of the teachings of the Prophet (saw), rather than to discuss any legal injunctions stemming from them (which will, undoubtedly, be touched upon at times). As such, this module simultaneously encompasses an important element to the programme, which is the tarbiyyah and personal development of the student.

Primary Text

Riyad al-Salihin

About the Text

The text, in English: The Gardens of the Righteous, is a two volume collection of 1,905 hadiths compiled by the renowned jurist and hadith scholar Imam Nawawi. Unlike many compilations of hadith, the book does not focus on Islamic law, but rather on the ethics and moral teachings of the Prophet.

About the Author

Abu Zakariyya Yahya ibn Sharaf al-Nawawi – better known simply as Imam Nawawi – was a prominent Shafi’i scholar and prolific author of the 7thCentury A.H. / 13th Century C.E. Born just outside of Damascus in the small town of Nawa, he was revered during his lifetime for his piety and commitment to Islamic knowledge and granted the epithet of Muhiyyadin (Reviver of the Religion). He authored many influential books, including the well-known Al-Arbaun al-Nawawi (40 Hadith of Imam Nawawi) and what is considered today as one of the greatest commentaries of Sahih Muslim. He passed away at the young age of 45 in 676 A.H. / 1277 C.E.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this unit students should be able to:

  • Analyse and evaluate certain texts of hadith
  • Understand how these same narrations can be understood and applied in our time to modern questions that the community faces
  • Demonstrate an in-depth understanding of tazkiyah and ihsan
